Thank you for purchasing the Panasonic Model
KX-TVS50/KX-TVS80 Voice Processing System.
The Panasonic Voice Processing System (VPS) is a powerful tool used to manage
your voice communications and increase your productivity through the use of your

• Send a message to one or more people inside or outside of your office.
• Transfer messages (with your annotation) to other VPS subscribers.
• Receive messages from any touchtone telephone.
• Be called at an outside telephone or be notified through your beeper, when there
are messages stored in your mailbox.
• Be notified by the message-waiting lamp on your extension that there are
messages stored in your mailbox.
• Screen your calls.
• Automate the handling of callers.
• And more...
Getting Started

After Hours Greeting.
The VPS plays the appropriate message for each call.
Personal greeting messages are always followed by a tone and a chance to leave a
message. Your personal greeting should say "please leave a message at the tone";
otherwise your callers will be confused.

1.3 Setting, Changing and Clearing Your Password
The VPS provides the option of assigning a password to your mailbox to protect the
messages stored there from unauthorized access. A password should be no longer than
10 digits (using the keys 0-9). You can change your password at any time. When setting
your password, avoid using obvious number combinations. If you forget your password,
have your System Administrator or System Manager clear it. You may then set a new one.

(for example, when transferring a message to a subscriber, they will hear the
subscriber’s name). In addition, if a caller does not know the mailbox number, she may
specify the mailbox by entering the first 3 or 4 letters of the owner's name. The VPS
will announce a series of recorded names from which the caller may select.

KX-T series telephone system with APT/DPT Integration (see "APT
Integration" and "DPT Integration" in Glossary).
4.2 Covering Extension
The caller goes to the covering extension in 3 ways:
• One way is via the Automated Attendant Service when the Incomplete Call
Handling Status has enabled Covering Extension Transfer Status (see
4.3 Incomplete Call Handling Status).
• The second way is during a Personal Greeting announcement—if the caller
presses [0] while a Personal Greeting is being played, she is sent to the covering
extension or to an operator (if the covering extension is not specified).
• The third way is while recording a message—if the caller presses [0] while
leaving a message, she is sent to the covering extension or to an operator (if the
covering extension is not specified).
• To activate this feature, your System Administrator must assign a Covering
Extension to your mailbox.

• The caller will not know to press [0] for transfer to your covering extension.
Therefore, the caller must be instructed. For example, you might record the
Busy greeting in this way: "Hi, this is Cindy. Sorry, but I am busy with
another call right now. If you press [0] now, you will be transferred to my
secretary. Otherwise, please leave a message after you hear the tone".
4.3 Incomplete Call Handling Status
Calls are considered incomplete if there is no answer or if the line is busy.
The Incomplete Call Handling Status has six options: (1) record a message from the
caller; (2) transfer the caller to a covering extension; (3) page the mailbox owner by
intercom (Intercom Paging); (4) notify the mailbox owner via a beeper; (5) transfer the
caller to the operator; or (6) let the caller try another extension.

By assigning one of your telephone keys to this feature, you can monitor incoming calls
that have been forwarded to the Voice Mail Service.
When in the Hands-Free Mode, you can monitor the incoming call through the
telephone’s built-in speaker. You can speak with the caller by picking up the handset.

telephone system.
4.14 Recording a Two-Way Conversation
By assigning one of the function keys on your telephone to this feature, you can record

You must always notify the other party before you begin recording.
There are 2 types of conversation recording, and hence 2 types of function keys:
(1) Two-Way Recording (TWR)
Record into your own mailbox.
(2) Two-Way Transfer (TWT)
Record into another subscriber's mailbox.
Normally, conversation recording time is limited. However, there is an "Unlimited

Glossary
Alternate Extension Group
Transfers the call coming into the extensions in this group following the sequence
specified by "Alternate Extension Transfer Sequence".
APT Integration
Digital Integration between the KX-TA624 and the VPS.
Auto Configuration
(Available with APT/DPT Integration only.) The VPS can automatically draw
information from the KX-TA624, the KX-TD816, the KX-TD1232, the KX-TA1232, the
KX-TD308 or the KX-TD500. This information includes, among other things, extension
number assignments for each VPS port. This saves time in the initial setup. Auto
Configuration can be executed by DIP Switch settings or by System Administration
(Quick Setup).
Auto Forwarding
Allows unretrieved messages to be copied or moved to another mailbox.
Automated Attendant
The Automated Attendant feature of the VPS requests the caller to enter an extension
number and then the VPS dials the number. If there is no answer or the line is busy,
the caller is given some options, including the option to leave a message in a mailbox.
This is the advantage of calling an extension indirectly through the Automated
Attendant rather than calling it directly.
Call Blocking
Connects the caller to the Incomplete Call Handling Service without ringing the
subscriber’s extension.
Call Screening
Allows subscribers to screen calls. The VPS prompts the caller with the message
"Record your name at the tone", and records the caller's name; it then puts the caller
on hold while playing the name to the subscriber who decides whether to take the call
or not.
Call Transfer
Transfers a call to the requested destination.
41
Glossary
Called Party ID
(Sometimes referred to as Follow-On ID) Allows the PBX to dial extra digits to bring the
caller directly to a specified mailbox, rather than to the General Delivery Mailbox.
Caller ID Call Routing
(Available with APT/DPT Integration only.) The VPS automatically sends calls from
pre-assigned Caller ID numbers to the desired extension, mailbox (including System
Group Distribution List) or Custom Service.
Caller Name Announcement (System/Personal)
(Available with APT/DPT Integration only.) The VPS announces prerecorded Caller ID
caller’s names when: (1) extension users listen to messages from pre-assigned
numbers left in the their mailboxes, (2) the VPS transfers calls from pre-assigned
numbers to the users (Caller ID Screening), and (3) the VPS pages the users by
